What is the Resource Center?
The Resource Center for Student Organizations is a campus program at the University of Washington that aims to facilitate the diverse interests and activities of the numerous campus student organizations. All of the Center’s resources and services are provided free of charge. The Resource Center is 100% funded by the Services and Activities Fee (SAF) and much of the equipment is funded by the Student Technology Fee Committee (STFC).
Who can use the Resource Center?
Any UW Seattle student who is an officer or member of a currently Registered Student Organization (RSO) with the Student Activities Office (SAO) may use the services, supplies and equipment in the Resource Center. Members of registered student government entities (ASUW and GPSS) may also use the Resource Center.
Who manages the Center?
The Resource Center was established in 1998 by students who formed their own RSO and were dedicated to improving the resources available to all RSOs. The HUB provided a space in the HUB and the Resource Center ran a student-run service for several years under advisement by HUB staff. In the mid-2000s the Resource Center became a formal unit within the HUB Department and a full-time staffer was hired to manage the unit and its student employees.
